Leadership coaching helps leaders understand their strengths and developmental areas while using a practical, targeted approach to increase their effectiveness. When appropriate, a 360-degree assessment is used to support the development and implementation of a practical, skill and behavior-based action plan.
How a 360-Degree Review Works
A 360-degree review focuses directly on a leader’s skills and the contributions they make to an organization. The feedback provides the leader with a balanced view of how others perceive their work contributions, specifically in areas such as leadership, teamwork, interpersonal communication and interaction, management, work habits, accountability, and vision.
Also known as multi-rater feedback, ERC’s 360-degree feedback assessment is a process through which feedback is gathered anonymously from managers, peers, and direct reports. The feedback is both quantitative (ratings on leadership behaviors) and qualitative (open-ended responses on strengths and areas of opportunities). We also provide the leader with a self-assessment.
Benefits of 360-Degree Feedback Assessments
- Understand the leadership challenges, competencies, and behaviors deemed important by their organization
- Increase self-awareness by understanding their strengths and development opportunities in their current leadership role
- Determine where gaps exist between their intentions and others’ perceptions and develop strategies to better align them
- Identify the next steps in their leadership development and align those actions with the strategic needs of the organization
ERC coaches will orchestrate the 360-degree feedback assessment and review. They will help the leader identify their raters, provide template communication to request the assessments, and conduct a feedback review session with the leader. Our enhanced level packages include action plan development and implementation coaching.
